I have Comcast cable and it uses DHCP... you cannot connect by manually entering DNS and Gateway configurations unless you have paid for a static IP...

How are you connecting to comcast would be the $20 question

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
